TCA, Pilot Flying J Show Appreciation for

Professional Truck Drivers Hauling Wreaths

 

 

 

Alexandria, Virginia:

 

On Saturday, millions of remembrance wreaths were laid on gravestones at more than 2,100 military veteran cemeteries across the United States, at sea, and abroad, thanks to the unwavering support from the trucking industry.

 

For nearly a decade, TCA and Pilot Flying J have shown their appreciation and support for the more than 75 professional truck drivers who deliver Wreaths Across America remembrance wreaths to Arlington National Cemetery each December.

 

Typically, on the Friday evening prior to National Wreaths Across America Day, TCA and Pilot Flying J would provide a hot meal at a nearby Marriott property as a token of their appreciation.

 

This year, as large gatherings are prohibited due to the pandemic, the organizations will show their support by mailing a commemorative challenge coin and matching adhesive truck decal to each Arlington National Cemetery driver.

 

 

The double-sided coins reflect this year's theme — "Be An American Worth Fighting For" — as well as this year’s event date — "December 19, 2020." The decal, which can adorn the cab of the driver's truck, resembles one side of the coin, but reflects the statement — "I Have Delivered A Truckload of Respect."

 

 

“A special part of our support of Wreaths Across America is the partnership with TCA and the trucking industry,” said Pilot Flying J Senior Manager of Operations and Executive Support Wendy Hamilton. “While this year’s Arlington Driver Rally may be different due to the pandemic, we remain dedicated to sponsoring and recognizing the professional drivers that transport wreaths across the country and to Arlington. Thank you, professional drivers, for your care and dedication to delivering the wreaths and being part of paying tribute to the veterans and their families who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.”
